In Delft you will find many porcelain items that have the classic blue-and-white color scheme associated with the town. The oldest brand is Delft Blue from De Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles. The factory is surprisingly small, but they offer a tour that includes a small garden,...More

There was a short but informative tour through the production facilities and we got an insight on how to tell the difference between hand painted and mass-produced porcelin. Worth the visit.
